Winding/Measuring Machine-AC Inverter 2000KG

Part Number:RDW1/AC

The RDW1/AC  Winding & Measuring machine is a heavy-duty machine capable of handling reels up to 2000kg weight and reels up to 1,600mm diameter x 1,200mm width. It will also accommodate cable up to a maximum of 75mm diameter (3.0").

Powered by a 4.0kW electric motor (also featuring an electric brake), through a heavy-duty step-down gearbox drive, this machine is very powerful.

Yet, despite the ability to handle large cable and reels, it is designed to be gentle with cable especially important when winding fibre-optic or finer products.

The comprehensive full AC Inverter control system provides the means to incorporate features such as:

  • Electric brake motor arrests "over-run" at the end of the count.
  • Automatic switch-off at the end of a preset cable length.
  • Auto slow-down speed 12 meters before the the end of the preset cable length (adjustable)
  • Programmable metric electronic counter and encoder, which allows for the winder to be recalibrated.
  • Full potentiometer speed control.

Other safety features include "Dead-Man" switch which allows winding only while operator is in contact with machine, (and will automatically brake stop the machine when contact is removed), as well as an Emergency Stop button located on the control box.

The machine will also immediately shut-down with any failure in the inverter.

Electronic encoder on the measure wheel, paired with the electronic counter, gives an accurate measurement of the cable.

Ramp-up and ramp-down acceleration/deceleration  rates can be adjusted.

A hydraulic ram with an electric/hydraulic pump is fitted to allow for drum size adjustments and ejection.

Drum inching can be achieved by using the 2 x "Forward/Reverse"  jog buttons.


Roll on roll off loading of cable drums eliminates lifting.
2 adjustable guide wheels keep the drum centred on the drive roller.
This winder is designed to run parallel to cable racking.

A rubber lined attachment winding drum is supplied with the winder, allowing for winding coils or holding smaller reels.

A speed control pot is fitted to the meter head for better operator control of the winding speed.
A slow down speed operates 10 metres from the end of preset cable length (adjustable).
Automatic switch-off of winder at the end of preset cable length.
An electric brake will operate in the event of:
• Loss of mains power.
• Emergency stop button being pressed.
• Inverter is not running.
• Operator switch in hand grip is released (dead man control).

Flame Red protective coating finish.

Power supply required: 20 amps 415 volts (3 phase and earth.)
4 KW A.C. 3 phase (electric) brake motor with inverter speed control.
Programmable metric electronic counter, allows for the winder to be recalibrated.
